Answer: Your Japanese Blueberry Tree is Elaeocarpus decipiens. It will produce fruit by itself but will produce heavier crops if you have a second Japanese Blueberry Tree in your landscape. New leaves are rusty and hairy, turning smooth and bright green; Old leaves turn red before dropping. Blooms with tiny, scented, white flowers in clusters followed by small, blue-black, edible fruits. Likes rich, well-drained soil. Needs little pruning. Plant your trees in full sunshine, digging the hole just slightly larger than the nursery pot. Place the rootmass in the hole and backfill with the soil you took out of the hole. Water deeply to help settle the soil and remember to water well once a week during the growing season.
Best wishes with your new blueberry tree!
